On November 21, the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar will host Qatar in a FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifier match against India. The Indian team, also known as “The Blue Tigers,” is coming off a spectacular win in their first game of the group stage against Kuwait on November 16 at Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait City.
Qatar, on the other hand, is one of the strongest teams in Asia and has dominated many matches with their impressive play. They recently won an 8-1 victory against Afghanistan at home and have gained three points in their last game.
Despite being considered underdogs, India has a chance to upset Qatar’s dominance with their home crowd support. Winning this match will significantly increase India’s chances of qualifying for the tournament, but they will face a formidable opponent today.
In recent years, Team India has had mixed results and has remained unbeaten at home. During their last match against Kuwait, a goal from Manvir Singh was enough to give India critical three points. In addition to that, India famously held Qatar to a 0-0 draw in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in 2019 and will be looking for another strong performance today to strengthen their position in Group A further.
If you want to watch the match between India and Qatar live, it will take place at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar on Tuesday, November 21, at 7:00 pm IST. The game will be live telecasted on Sports18 1, Sports18 HD, and Sports18 3 channels. Additionally, it can be streamed live on Jio Cinema app and website.
